Happiness is Helping Out: 188 INALJ Volunteers!

This is just a brief place for me to say THANKS to the 188 current INALJ volunteers and the many, many more past volunteers!

I am (nearly) speechless!  I just over a month and a half we have banded together some previous and a whole bunch of new info pros, librarians and library staff to make INALJ grow in jobs, advice, articles and so much more.

Raise a glass!

Here’s to those who wish us well and even those who don’t.  May we all find jobs that we are happy with and feel we can grow in and contribute to!

Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular LIS jobs resource INALJ.com (formerly I Need a Library Job). Founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate, Elizabeth Leonard, INALJ’s social media presence has grown to include Facebook (retired in 2016), Twitter and a LinkedIn group, in addition to the interviews, articles and jobs found on INALJ.com. INALJ has had over 20 Million page views and helped thousands of librarians and LIS folk find employment! Through grassroots marketing, word of mouth and a real focus on exploring unconventional resources for job leads, INALJ grew from a subscription base of 20 friends to a website with over 500,000 visits in a month. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this many new jobs published daily. She was a 2013 Library Journal Mover & Shaker and has served on the University of Maryland iSchool Board from 2014-2017. Naomi was a Reference, Marketing and Acquisitions Librarian for a contractor at a federal library outside Washington, DC, and now lives part time in Western NY and Budapest, Hungary. She has heard of spare time but hasn’t encountered it lately. She pronounces INALJ as eye-na-elle-jay.
